Monday Mural

 I'm linking up at Monday Mural 

May 2021 - Toronto ON

Also taken by John has he walked by the Humber River.

The concrete wall that separates the Humber River bike trail from the Humber Sewage Treatment Plant has always had graffiti on it, but now a coordinated effort between streetARToronto and Anishnaabe artist Philip Cote and his associates has led to a blend of Woodland School painting and modern abstract tagging.

National Indigenous Peoples Day has been commemorated on June 21 in Canada since 1996, making this year its 25th anniversary. The day is intended to be a time for people to recognize and celebrate the heritage, cultures and contributions of Indigenous peoples to the country.


  1. Lots of imagination and tons of color in parts of this, especially the abstract tagging. Some of the artists were really good and created some real beauties. Nice to see an area cleaned up with art that a city can be proud of.

  2. ...these are great and some of them look to have been difficult to paint along the river!

  3. Wonderful art beautifully captured.

  4. I wonder how the murals were painted from the water. My favourites are the round murals. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Jackie.

  5. Cote's work is always so fabulous!

  6. Oh that girl in the first photos is kinda scary! I do love public art!
